Chevron Pakistan Lubricants (Pvt) Ltd. held a groundbreaking ceremony for its West Wharf Lubricant Blending Plant at Dockyard Road in Karachi, Pakistan, early this week.
The project would provide state-of-the-art infrastructure, including the installation of fully automated high-tech lube blending equipment and new blending control system. The investment would also include construction of new bulk storage tanks, additive decanting bay and bulk filling facility.
Chevron Pakistan Lubricants said it plans to spend more than PKR 2 billion (USD 18.9 million) in Pakistan in the next three to four years, to upgrade and expand its lubricants blending plant in West Wharf, as well as other facilities across Pakistan.
“Chevron is committed to grow its lubricants business in Pakistan, and this investment is a testament of its intent. Over the years, our Pakistan lubricants business has shown significant growth and it is important that we invest today, for a brighter tomorrow,” said Farrukh Saeed, vice president, Asia Pacific.
Chevron Corp., based in San Ramon, Calif., U.S.A., and one of the world’s largest integrated energy companies, markets lubricants in Pakistan under the Havoline and Delo brand.
